Crunchy Cajun chicken

I adapted Jamie Oliver’s recipe a little and used mini corn instead of corn on the cobs. The butter is a must! Absolutely delicious. We did serve the chicken in a ciabatta roll, like a chicken sandwich. -enjoy- Ingredients (Serves 4) 2 fresh red chillies 1 clove of garlic sea salt freshly ground black pepper…

Baked potato with rapid ragu & green bean salad

This rapid ragu is a Nigella Lawson recipe, the baked potato was my own idea to add. Together with the cold bean salad and almond shavings, this dish became more of an early dinner. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  -Enjoy- PS: I did make a vegetarian version as well. Just leave the pancetta and lamb out. The caramelized onions…

Quinoa and haloumi spring salad

A great combination with the Lamb and feta meatball flatbreads. My colleagues at BUX munched their way through this healthy lunch, some of them even came back for thirds… We did skip the haloumi in this recipe. The reason why was because we just did not order it. So improvising is a great thing, skipping…

Chicken Teriyaki

We are so lucky with our food supplier “de Kweker“, the chicken thigh fillets were superb again today. The meat was so tender. I am sure that the marinate made it deliciously soft as well, but you do need good quality chicken for this recipe. Make sure you let the liquid boil down to a…

Broccoli, Cauliflower and Stilton Soup

The original ingredients of this recipe consist of mainly broccoli and Stilton. Just because our grocery supplier didn’t have enough broccoli in stock, we opted for cauliflower. Also, we changed the dried thyme for dried Italian herbs, which worked out really well. This soup is quite filling, but absolutely gorgeous. It’s great to add this…

Salmon en croute

It was madness in the BUX kitchen and office yesterday. The new coffee machine arrived at the same time as the Graffiti/Street artist Tim Rodermans, who turned our office wall into a vibe of fantastic colors. Meetings were finding place everywhere and everybody was in an overexcited Easter mood. You can guess that lunch wasn’t…

Lamb & chickpea curry

We had a ball today in the BUX kitchen. Everybody was guessing what the chef was preparing for lunch. One said “chicken”, the other figured “kebab”. I heard many suggestions, but none of them were right. aha! This Lamb curry came for some as a surprise, but it was delicious. We did serve the dish…

Spinach and lemon baguette

Today was another vegetarian day for the Buxers…although some of them sneaked a little anchovies into the salad ;-). I did promise some meat for tomorrow. But, no complaints: next to the pea, courgette & parmesan soup, this lunch was in perfect balance. -enjoy- INGREDIENTS (serves 6) 1 large crusty baguette 200g baby spinach 200ml…

Pea, courgette and parmesan soup

This is an incredible tasty soup. The white pepper gives this dish a big kick, you will find yourself full of energy afterwards. Green makes and tastes good. A great spring dish! We added some homemade croutons to the soup to give it a bit of a crunch. Mmm -enjoy- INGREDIENTS (serves 6) 1ยฝ tbsp…

Kimchi fried rice

It was a true challenge to cook this lovely dish for my Buxers yesterday. First, I did get on my bike from Central Station early in the morning, to get to this great place called Dun Yong. It’s a Walhalla of Asian Food at the Stormsteeg 9 in Amsterdam. With my Kimchi, take-away boxes and…
